Features & Benefits

The I-Core is Hunters controller for demanding commercial and high-end residential applications. Loaded with innovative features like state of the art flow monitoring, quick system overview access, a factory-installed Smart Port, six language capability, and a bold, back-lit display, the I-Core should be considered for most high-end irrigation projects. A big reason the I-Core is so unique is its sheer versatility. The plastic cabinet version is expandable from 6 to 30 stations, and the metal cabinet model can handle up to 42. Adding a DUAL two-wire module and decoders can expand station capability to 48. Stainless steel and pedestal models are also available, providing a broad range of enclosure choices. With other add-on options like a ROAM or ROAM XL remote and the built-in conservation focused Solar-Sync, I-Cores possibilities are all but limitless. When used with Solar Sync, the I-Core is certified by the EPA as a Water sense-approved controller yet another reason why the I-Core stands alone as the commercial controller of choice.
